Bridge for many devices?

Hillo,

Has anyone found a bidriectionnal bridge to trigger devices and receive state of devices ?

Why i am asking? Because of the lack of compatible devices of smartthings…

Thank you for sharing your solution…!

The first rule of home automation applies: “the model number matters.“

There are literally over a dozen different radio frequencies used in home automation these days. And no one bridge/hub supports all of them. It would be too bulky, expensive, and technically complex to do so.

What specific devices or device classes were you hoping to use? That would be an easier question to find a solution for. :sunglasses:

Also, what country are you in? The device selection does vary.

I see exactly what you mean.

I am missing doorbird and Google chromecast and TTS mostly.
Maybe the integration of google nest next month will solve google cast and tts ?

As a webdevelopper i looked into the st sdk but did not understandhow to start? Wish i could find a first tutorial on how to connect an api (like the doobirdapifor example) and integrate to ST. Even a hello world could help but did not find…
